Mold Removal – Salem, NH

Written by jsolloway on . Posted in , , .

The need for mold removal services at your property can be a serious issue. The presence of mold often raises several concerns. Mold is often the result of unwanted water infiltration or excessive humidity. The source of moisture must always be addressed on every mold removal project. The next step is to remediate the mold itself. Soil-Away is certified and specializes in mold remediation services for south/central New Hampshire and northern Massachusetts. Below is a brief summary of a mold removal project we recently completed in Salem, NH.
A Salem homeowner recently discovered mold in his attic. It was very concerning. He was preparing the property for sale and needed to eliminate this issue. Listing the home for sale with an existing mold issue was not an option. He did an online search for “mold removal – Salem, NH” and found Soil-Away. He scheduled a site inspection with both the mold remediation experts at Soil-Away and with his general contractor friend.
Whenever a client has the need for mold removal services, one of the first issues that should be addressed is the source of the problem. Typically with mold damage a water or moisture source must be identified then addressed. During the site inspection both the general contractor and Soil-Away estimator concluded that the attic mold was likely caused by a ventilation issue. A new roof had been installed three years ago. No ridge vent was cut in. A ridge vent allows air to flow from the soffit vents along the lower edge of the roof up through the peak of the roof. Without this ventilation system fully functional, the attic has a high probability of escalated humidity. Condensation will often form on the wood sheathing. This can lead to mold growth.
A clear scope of service was developed to solve the mold problem. The general contractor would install a ridge vent. The team from Soil-Away would perform the mold removal services. The homeowner accepted the bids. The work was scheduled for the following week.
Soil-Away’s certified mold remediation team would spend three days completing the mold removal project. Day one consisted of setting up the job. They setup containment barriers to isolate the area being work on. The team also disposed of the insulation from the attic which was also affected. On the second day, Soil-Away utilized dry-ice blasting to remove the mold from the attic sheathing. This process is similar to sand blasting, but is much cleaner. Next the entire attic space was HEPA vacuumed then treated with an antimicrobial. On the final day of the mold removal project, the team from Soil-Away encapsulated the attic with an antimicrobial sealer. They finished the project by reinsulating the space.
Everything pertaining to the mold removal process was completed according to the IICRC S-520 standard of care. This guide sets the protocols for how proper mold remediation should be performed. This was another successful mold removal job for three reasons. First, the source of the mold (ventilation) was fixed. Second, the mold was thoroughly remediated. Third, the homeowner was thrilled with the services and could now list his Salem house for sale.

All I have to say is WOW and FANTASTIC. I just got done building out my new professional office with Soil-Away’s construction division and they went ABOVE and BEYOND. Scott and Mike, the carpenters are skilled artisans. The project got done on time and the project came in on budget! The finished results have been blowing people away. Much better than I could have anticipated. Anyone is welcome to come to our office, Bright Light Chiropractic in Hooksett to check out the fine work they did. Simply can’t sing enough praises for them. Sorry that the picture doesn’t do the job justice. Thank you Jack and your team. -Dr. Jay

Since day one, I’ve known the owner, Jack, to be a hard-working and selfless leader. Through the efforts of him and his team, he was able to restore my flooded restaurant to tip-top shape. I was amazed with Jack’s orderliness throughout the entire process. Jack has proven to me that he is trustworthy, as both a friend and an individual in the work environment.

Highly recommend Soil-Away. A pipe in our upstairs bathroom gave and sent water down through a wall for at least a day before we noticed water dripping through our kitchen ceiling. Our insurance put us in touch with Soil-Away and they were at our house the next morning to assess the damage and dry things out. Joe, Ray and Tom were phenomenal to work with. They explained every part of the process to us and were very professional and friendly. If you have to deal with similar issues call Soil-Away, you won’t regret it.
